Hike to a Lake in the Crater of a Volcano in Guatemala

Thanks to Immersion Travel for publishing my article Chicabal Lake Volcano: Grassroots Ecology in Guatemala.

Wailing voices echo across the lake to where I sit on a bench, breaking open rambutans, small fruit the size of golf balls with hairy red peels. Three women bow down at the shore as they sing and pray, wearing the multicolored, woven dresses of Guatemalan Mayans. A man in jeans sits behind them and two small children quietly play. From about 50 yards away, I’m close enough to see, but I hope not close enough to be intrusive.
